Please, excuse the mess.

I am currently refamiliarizing myself with WordPress after using SquareSpace for several years. As a result, I am trying to edit and clean up the older post that I exported over and finish designing my header image BEFORE making any new post. Thanks for stopping by and I will be sure to make an announcement on Twitter when I have fully relaunched my blog.

Edit: Now that I have finished reformatting some of my older blog entries from the past I just wanted to make one thing clear. They are obviously old posts, so I would say take them with a grain of salt. While some of them are still a good read they do not have much purpose in the year 2022. I am a very different person from when I wrote these entries/articles 😉

Shazam! Not what I expected.

 

I got to see Shazam! almost three weeks early thanks to one of my favorite local conventions “MomoCon”. They hosted a fan event that was first come first serve and thankfully I was there early enough to get a good seat. Now let me get this out of the way…. I’ve never been a huge fan of Shazam as I haven’t read any of the comics and have only seen him here and there watching the “Justice League” cartoon series. That being said, I went into watching this film with low expectations due to unfamiliarity and let’s be real the fact that its a DC live-action film (if you weren’t aware live-action has never been their strong suit there’s a handful of hits among a seas of misses). However, this turned out to be a good film that I wouldn’t have been upset about had I actually purchased a ticket.

I don’t want to spoil anything since it doesn’t officially release until April 5, 2019 but I loved the lighthearted tone throughout. There was humor, a bit of family drama, and a decent amount of action. The last few minutes of the movie really left me satisfied. The audience was clapping and cheering along together in the theater and I got a new idea for a cosplay character. It also held my attention throughout which was a pleasant surprise. I try to go see movies that I know will truly pull me in because on occasion I have been known to nod off if something is boring. It may not be the best DC film ever, but I have no complaints. It was a delight and I’m considering going to see it again.

Microsoft Surface Go, is it worth it?

Note: I started this article exactly one month ago and it is just now getting posted. I made posts on social media about how I was going to upload it over the weekend and I failed in epic fashion … I don’t even have a valid excuse. I’m sorry to those who were looking forward to it for so long. The good news though is that this review will be much more thorough as I’ve had the device for several weeks.

I’m the type of person that does extensive research on a product before I make a purchase. I have been looking at the Microsoft Surface Go for a few months and weighing my options during that time. I debated on getting an iPad or a Chromebook as well. I made my ultimate decision on Thanksgiving Day while shopping at Best Buy to pick up the Surface Go. You can’t beat 18 Months no interest and $50 off the usual price so I went with it and have had no regrets.

Out of the box… it wasn’t quite the tablet of my dreams but after tweaking a few things here and there it has certainly risen to my expectations. I made sure to get the option with the most RAM and the most storage (8GB/128GB) because anything less would just not be worth it in my opinion.
